few weeks ago, Professor
Shlomo Mor-Yosef, director
general of Hadassah Hospital
Ein Kerem in Jerusalem, was privileged
to participate in a moving ceremony
with a special family. Two generations
of Metro Detroit's Klein-Bruch family
visited Hadassah Hospital. They came
to participate in a ceremony marking
their generous gift to the Sarah Wetsman
Davidson Tower, endowed by Karen and
Bill Davidson of Bloomfield Hills before

Afterschool
Advocate

The Afterschool Alliance
honored Farmington
Hills Mayor Jerry Ellis
for his support for after-
school programs. He was
cited at the "Breakfast
Mayor Ellis
of Champions" event on
April 21 in Washington.
Ellis was one of 10 people honored
nationwide for supporting and working
on behalf of afterschool programs. The
Michigan After-School Partnership nomi-
nated him for the honor.
Ellis has made after-school programs
one of his top three priorities and has
been instrumental in helping establish five
decentralized after-school youth centers in
Farmington Hills.
Through the Mayor's Youth Council, he
has given a voice to youth, encouraging
students to share their concerns with city
council members. He attends and helps

Bill died in 2009. The gift honored the
blessed memory of their parents Agnes
and Bernard Klein.
The late Bernard Klein and his brother,
Emery, of Southfield survived the
Holocaust. Emory married Diane and
Bernard married Agnes, also a Holocaust
survivor. They built lives and created
legacies.
Their visit was particularly meaning-
ful and symbolic since they came to
Ein Kerem from Yad Vashem, Israel's

put together youth fundraising activities
that support after-school programs. And
all of the fees he collects from performing
marriage ceremonies go directly to after-
school programs.
As a coach of youth baseball and bas-
ketball, Ellis became aware of the need for
more athletic fields in the community for
young people to have safe places to play.
He spearheaded the campaign to build
Founders Sports Park in Farmington Hills,
which is now home to six soccer fields,
eight baseball/softball diamonds, an indoor
ice arena, volleyball, basketball, bocce ball
courts and a disc golf course.
He was a strong advocate for the latest
addition to Founders Sports Park: The
Riley Skate Park, dedicated in June. It is the
largest skate park in the Midwest and is
enjoyed by people of all ages.
The Afterschool Alliance (www.after-
schoolalliance.org ) is a nonprofit public
awareness and advocacy organization
working to ensure that all children and

Holocaust memorial. When they entered
the Tower site, they stopped at the loca-
tion of the future Holocaust memorial
that was created by the Shapell family of
Beverly Hills, Calif.
After the modest ceremony — the
first ceremony to be held in the Tower
— Professor Mor-Yosef asked the fam-
ily if they wished to say a few words.
Bloomfield Hills resident Ron Klein, son
of Agnes and Bernard Klein, told the
children: "You need to remember us being
here today. It means we won! Thanks to
grandfather and others like him, we are all
here today, helping to build Israel."
The story of the Klein-Bruch family
is the story of the Jewish people they
represent, together with millions of other
families and Hadassah. As Professor Mor-
Yosef wrote to the Klein family members
who could not be at the ceremony: "We
all came from the ashes of the Shoah;
but are building for the future here in
Jerusalem. And building in Jerusalem at
this point in history is of particular sig-
nificance:'
"The Klein-Bruch family and special
people like them, dedicated supporters
who are helping us build our Tower, to
help Hadassah provide the people of Israel
with the highest level of medicine avail-

Hospital's donor services director.

programs.

Vets Selling Poppies
The Michigan Jewish War Veterans of the
USA and Ladies Auxiliary will join with
other veteran groups in Michigan for the
annual May poppy sales.
The yearly event helps raise funds for
servicing Veterans Administration hospi-
tals along with helping provide scholar-
ships for descendants of veterans attend-
ing Michigan colleges.
The poppy tradition dates back to 1915
during World War I when a Canadian
physician, Lt. Col. John McCrea, wrote the
poem "In Flanders Fields" after he per-
formed the burial service for his friend
killed in action and buried in Belgium's
Flanders Cemetery.
JWV has no paid employees so all of the
funds collected go where intended, assist-
ing veterans and their families.
